Over the years, Geosyntec Consultants which is in Florida, worked with clients who were operators of landfills and wanted to increase the life of a landfill. They wanted to use them at maximum capacity even if they were filled, covered and closed. One way to increase it’s capacity, is by doing vertical expansion along the landfill to add space for waste. Another way to get landfills to be used at their maximum capacity is by using them to do renewable energy park using two type of energy which are electric energy and heat or thermal energy.

Yet, more than 690 species who live underwater are victims of these plastic wastes. The thing is that a majority of these marine species are attracted by the smell of plastic and mistake it with their food.

Horizontal drilling and high-volume hydraulic are being talked as being a potential harm to the environment and to human health.
